Product Description

Amazon.ca

Def Leppard's rock sensibilities shot them right to the top of the charts in the 1980s. On their third album, Pyromania, the band reconciled new wave melodicism with heavy metal and catchy hooks without compromising any of its edge. The album has sold over 10 million copies, due in part to heavy rotation on MTV. But even without their ubiquitous television presence, anthems like "Rock of Ages" and "Foolin'" still had the stuff that drove the kids crazy. Bursts of screaming guitars and simple power riffs joined forces with choruses that begged to be shouted along to. Guitarists Phil Collen and Steve Clarke may have provided all the pyrotechnics on Pyromania, but the focal point of Def Leppard's sound, particularly for their teenage female fans, was singer Joe Elliott's voice (and, of course, his hair). The record--an essential brick in the foundation of '80s metal--also contains the hit "Photograph". --Steve Gdula

5.0 out of 5 stars Pyromania is Contagious July 27 2009
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Pyromania is one of those landmark albums that every rock fan should own: Over 10 million copies sold, 3 classic hit singles, and a sound that at the time was so new and fresh that everybody took notice. This is before Rick Allen's accident, before Steve Clark's death, and before Def Leppard had any serious hits. 3 would prove to be their lucky number when they set down to record their third album.

This reissue sounds fantastic. It brings the glory of Mutt Lange's groundbreaking production into daylight. The liner notes (by one of my favourite writers, Rolling Stone's David Fricke) reveal Mutt's obsession: At one point the band were laying down entire chords one note at a time in order to get the right amount of power. Their goal was to create an album that nobody had made before, and they succeeded. (Hard to believe that they would pull off the same stunt twice, and do it again on Hysteria, as different from Pyromania as it was from the bands that copied Pyromania!)

Unlike the Hysteria and Adrenalize Deluxe Editions, with Pyromania there were no extra tracks lying around unreleased, and no B-sides available. (The liner notes reveal that an 11th song was written, but not much else.) Instead the bonus second CD is filled with an awesome sounding show from the Pyromania tour. It's important to remember that no live albums or videos were released by Def Leppard until post-Hysteria, so this is the only live release featuring Rick Allen before his accident. Def Leppard sound absolutely ferocious. Joe Elliot's voice is at its vocal-cord-shredding best, gargling glass like AC/DC. Steve Clark and Phil Collen (a new addition) rip and shred on their guitars and weave them into a wall of thunder. Allen and Rick Savage keep it rolling on the rhythm section, never letting up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leppard's best, the 80's best April 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
Pyromania is the brdige between a very good album, (High N Dry) and a pretty good one(Hysteria). Pyromania is the great one. This album kicked off what Back in Black, by AC/DC almost did. Placing metal in the mainstream and keeping it there for sometime. Remember, for about 10 years after this album, Metal music was a norm on top 40 radio. In the same way hip hop is in control of radio and videos today, Pop Metal was by far the biggest thing going on MTV and top 40 radio for about a decade. Although, The Seattle movement is credited for putting and end to it, Nirvanna, Peral Jam, ect, in reality, they were still Hard Rock bands that thrived off of top 40 Radio and MTV, which would have never happend 10 years before. Pop Metal opened the door for allowing Heavy music to be heard by the casual observer. Def Leppard's Pyromania is revolutionary, not only for the metal bands that followed, but for the Metal bands that already were and received larger appeal( Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Areosmith, Metallica) due to what Pyromania jump started. Therefore, setting up even the hard Seattle bands. When you hear Photograph and Rock of Ages on the radio today they still sound fresh. Def Leppard's Pyromania, a true classic and true Rock of the Ages

3.0 out of 5 stars Its alright March 27 2004
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
Pyromania, its well its alright, not really haard rock not really hair metal, but very much commercial with a few really good songs. Def Leppard to me is very much like the British Bon Jovi. They are alright everyonce in a while but no more then that.
With that said Pyromania is the best thing Def Leppard ever made, and in my openion the only good album they ever made, Yes I think Hysteria is one of the worst albums I have ever heard! "Rock Rock' is a pretty cool rock song but nothing special. 'Too Late For Love' is good song but once again nothing too important. 'Foolin' is good but can get old after a few listens and that is all pop sounding, there is nothing rock about that song at all! 'Rock Of Ages' is one of the better songs on the album. 'Comming Under Firer' and "Billys Got A Gun' are both decent rock songs but once again nothing special. 'Photograph' is a really really good song, it is the best song that Def Leppard have ever made.
This is not the best album in the world but if you are into that kind of 1980's rock then this is for you guys I guess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pyromania (1983) Feb. 1 2004
By B-MAN
Format:Audio CD
If someone could only buy one Def Leppard album I would probably tell them to go get "Hysteria", but not owning "Pyromania" as well would be a crime. 1983's Pyromania is what put Def Leppard on the map with hits (& accompanying MTV videos) like "Photograph", "Foolin", and "Rock of Ages". Not to mention fan favorites like "Stagefright" & "Rock Rock ('til you drop)". The album, again produced by AC/DC producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, is where the Def Leppard sound is solidified, sounding like an obvious precursor to their 1987 masterpiece "Hysteria". In my opinion, no Def Leppard collection is complete without the first 4 albums, which in my opinion is the best of the band, but not having at least "Hysteria" and "Pyromania" is just depriving yourself of genre defining music.
also recommended:
Hysteria (1987)
High 'n Dry (1981)
On Through the Night (1980)
